We could see the Lobster Shack from our condo window, and waited until the last day of our trip to try it out-Incredibly fresh lobster! We started with 2 cups of the bisque and 8 cake bites. Soup was steamy, creamy and lobstery, bites were hot, doughy and satisfying. We then ordered the premier (6oz) lobser roll, the fried lobster strips, 2 ears of corn and a side of sweet potato fries. Everything was fresh, made to order, tender, super tasty and easy to chow down on at the waterside picnic tables. The only menu item we didn't try was the lobster meal bc we didn't want to work that hard removing the shell! This is a co-op with the lobsterman and it was some of the best food we had all week in Newport!

Great little lobster shack on the wharf near the tender drop off. Had the lobster bites and was quite tasty and a fairly large order. I would definitely eat there again.

Lobster bisque not hot and very cream like yogurty wasn’t to m liking. Lobster strips ok, sauce is really good. Everyone around me was eating the lobster sandwich and were raving about it.

6 of us wanted a lobster roll, and we were directed to this place on the wharf. The roll was warm, but the lobster was cold...Not as good as I had hoped.

This place has the best lobster fresh off the boat made right in front of you nothing fancy but probably the best lobster you'll get in Newport at the most reasonable price it must visit right on the harbor great views!
